Leaving By Train – Heading to Lviv


Today we travel five hours from Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, heading west to Lviv on a very nice train. We were at the train station at 6:15 AM. It’s an express train and should provide for a restful morning. Much needed!

As I was asking everyone to make sure they had their passport, it struck me that we needed it to prove our citizenship in the US. We pray this week we see many here that will be able to prove their heavenly citizenship by having their names added to The Lamb’s Book of Life.

  1. Praying for you now, because it will be hard to pray in a room full of teenagers at 11:00! for the extraordinary power of God to power this unique “Band of Brothers” to sing as never before the message to those who have never heard. (2 Corinthians 4:7) Kick back and let it go guys.

  2. Thankful to know where and how you are. Praying for the day’s work and tonight’s concert.

  3. In my mind’s eye, I can picture where you’ve been, where you are, and the palace you’ll sing in tonight. Praying for a full house eager to hear The Country Boys, but who wind up hearing about their Creator! Praying that hundreds will respond to the gospel as Michael speaks! Don’t hold anything back!!

  4. May our gracious Lord richly bless every effort today to point the way to Him as Lord of All!

  5. Praying for no hindrances to music and message. May both be clear and compelling. Praying for the Lord’s guidance and blessing on you, John, as you solve the technical riddles that are bound to pop up today and at each new concert venue. Praying for health and strength for all. Most of all praying for the Spirit to have freedom to move in the hearts and minds of all who will hear the gospel, the good news, in just a few minutes.

  6. After a full day I’m finally reading this knowing that your day has ended and I am sure the Lord has used you mightily for His Kingdom! It’s my prayer you will rest well this evening after serving our Lord Christ today. Praying each day for you and your ministry in Ukraine!
